Staff Screening Tool Kit: Keeping the Bad Apples Out of Your Organization.
Patterson, John; And Others
During the past decade, community-serving organizations have encountered increasing pressure to implement comprehensive screening of program staff to reduce the risks inherent in working with vulnerable populations, such as young children. This screening "tool kit" suggests a process of staff screening based on the requirements of the position, the nature of the contact with clients, and legal limitations on the use of screening tools. The book includes chapters on: (1) legal aspects of screening; (2) position descriptions; (3) recruitment and applications; (4) interviews; and (5) reference and record checks. Included are sample position descriptions, applications, and interview questions. A list of State Child Protective Agencies and State Criminal History Repositories is provided, as well as references to relevant case law. Contains a list of resources and a 16-item bibliography.
